MAC Uplifting Mineralize Blush ($27.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “peach with bright orange marble.” It’s a lightened, slightly muted, orange with hints of brown and a metallic sheen. There is a fair amount of silver sparkle running through it, too.
Too Faced Luminous Peach (LE) is darker, less sparkly. MAC Style Cast (LE, $21.00) is less sparkly. MAC Highlighter (LE, $30.00) is less sparkly. Becca Guava/Moonstone (P, $27.00) is less sparkly. MAC Fairly Precious (LE, $30.00) is similar. MAC Perfectly Poised (Outer) (LE, $30.00) is darker. NARS Realm of the Senses #3 (LE, $29.00) is less sparkly. MAC Trace Gold (P, $21.00) is darker, less sparkly. MAC Center of the Universe (LE, $30.00) is darker. MAC Warmth of Coral (LE, $27.00) is darker, less sparkly. MAC Solar Ray (LE, $27.00) is darker. MAC Blazing Haute (LE, $25.00) is darker, less sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This shade will launch on December 26th in-stores and pop-up a bit earlier on MAC’s website on the 23rd. Like Please Yourself, the finish is more sparkly, and with this particular shade, almost metallic, too. I noticed this one emphasized pores more than the other blush as a result of the very shimmery finish. It also seemed to go on lighter than it appeared, so it ended up as more of a slightly warming highlighter on my skin tone (NC25/NC30 for reference). The texture was soft but almost felt dry, as I could feel the sparkly bits. The color wore well for six and a half hours on me, and there was a lot of sparkle migration over time (it was everywhere).

This is the one that I was considering of the 2 blushes. I am so glad you reviewed it. I am having issues w/ pores and I don’t want to wear any product that will emphasize that! Thanks. you are awesome!

I couldn’t take the level of glitter and frost on my cheeks. I know it would drive my bf nuts, too, LOL! Whenever he seems a glitter on my face, be becomes fixated on removing it. 😛

That is a sparkly orange thing! 😀 It looks great on you – I’m not sure how it would turn out on me, but it makes me want to wear it as an eyeshadow with navy clothes…

Technically, though, I have UD Chopper for that purpose, LOL!

Hi Christine,
I was about to buy it but i think i’ll pass cause too shiny for me
It is jut a pity cause i like the pattern.. I think i Will take the Brown
Eyeshadow instead. Thanks for the review. You made my decision.

Would this be similar to Fun&Games blush from the Hello Kitty collection? I LOVED that blush, and have not seen it come back out (unless missed it). I can’t seem to find a good dupe for it either:(
